Bio/Research

I’m the Film Studies Program’s resident specialist in digital and new media studies. I joined Laurier in 2011, and teach courses on the Animated Film, Digital New Media, and Japanese Film, among others.

Prior to joining Laurier, I completed my PhD in English and Film Studies at the University of Manitoba in 2011, with a dissertation on transcultural animation fan communities. I received my MA in English from Queen’s University in 2006 and my BA in Honours English from Dalhousie University in 2004.

My research focuses on the ways in which visual media technologies, from celluloid film to social networking, affect how audiences understand visual images, create their own works, and use media to connect with others. All of these ideas are explored in my recent book, Anime Fan Communities: Transcultural Flows and Frictions (Dec. 2014).

In general, I’m interested in the areas of contemporary film theory, media studies, fan studies, anime and manga studies, Japanese film and popular culture, media globalization, and postcolonial studies.
